Rated 3 out of 5 by skorpia your gonna have to replace every few years
Depending on how much you beat up your gloves and how much your love em these babies simply fall apart from wear and tear. I agree with people complaining that they come apart fast,My problem is that I have huge hands and the fingers are too close for me and I ripped the seam already. I use these when I jog and I feel it on my sides.I really wish they would use hooks instead of velcro,Not only is it impssible to put on it wears out fast, On top of that the sand leaks,

I had to send them back multiple for falling apart. The sand leaks quickly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by leweber Have to replace after a year
Love using the gloves with my workout, but unfortunately after only a year they have worn out. The velcroe won't hold well, the fabric has stretched and the sand is falling out of one through the seams.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ziggy Great addition to my workout; velcro doesn't last
These were a great addition to my Turbo Jam workouts until the Velcro wore out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Realestategal49 Love these gloves! And they work!
I have been working out now for 2 months with Turbo Jam and using the sculpting gloves for each workout. I workout 4-5 times a week. I now have biceps and my arms are so much stronger. I love these gloves! They are easy to use and burn up twice as many calories!

Rated 1 out of 5 by workout crazy sizing stinks
These gloves might be a great addition to a work-out IF THEY FIT. Why don't you offer these in sizes?? I am a petite woman and have very small hands. There is just no way I can use these. Bummer.

I use these gloves for a little extra resistance when doing Cardio, esp. Turbofire. They may seem light weight but they get heavy quickly when you are moving around. I felt a difference the first time I used them and have been addicted ever since. I haven't had any problems with the velcro - I would recommend spraying them down with Febreeze or Lysol if your using them alot...if you need to wash them...use a garment bag and wash on delicate or let them soak.

Rated 4 out of 5 by InsaneDarkness Great Psyc-out tool!
These gloves are not that heavy but into your workout you will start to feel them. I use them in my Insanity workouts and i feel a difference.
In addition they are a great tool to push yourself. You put them on and do an excercise with arms straight or something and just see these lumps on your hands and it helps you to push through.
the only real downside i see to these is the velcro. i just get worried sometimes through my workout that they will come off and over time that the velcro will weaken.
I would say if you are looking for a simple tool to give your workout that extra boost... here it is.

I have had my weighted hand gloves for 5 years or so and have noticed only minimal ripping but it will become a nuisance soon. I also found out that you can wash them in the washing machine in a garment bag on Delicate. I was thinking of buying a new pair so figured I didn't have anything to lose if I washed them. They washed up ok and got rid of some of the grime. I wouldn't recommend washing them alot though, just once in a while to clean them up. Overall, I am very satisfied with them and will purchase them again, now that I know I can machine wash them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by babee i've purchased these gloves about 2 years ago when I first brought Turbo Jam and the gloves says that you can "wash them" but evidently, if you're are actually working out with them, with all the sweat that is coming off your hands and everything, they eventually fall apart at the velcro.
So, now I have to put rubber bands and paper clips on them because I'm no seamstress. Besides the cons, the pros are that the gloves are functional and they work while one is working out but just don't expect them to stay on your hands for long, that's if you're really doing a workout with them.
